Check out this cute card I received from Leslee using the adorable Bear Hugs stamp set and Framelit Dies found in the Occasions Catalog on page 40.

Bear Hugs SC 2016 Occasions Catalog Swap

Cute right? What father wouldn’t love getting this card?

And you can purchase this set and framelits in a money saving bundle (140822/140823) while supplies last or until May 31st when the Occasions Catalog ends. (While you’ll find these items in our 2016 Annual Catalog they won’t be offered in the Bundle any longer.)

And here are some more wonderful masculine cards I received from my fellow demonstrators in swaps.

This first one was given to me by Trudy. She used the stamp set From Land to Sea (138720/139361) and created the sand dunes using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set (139971).

Clever girl – I love it when you can use stamps and punches for other things!

And finally this card uses one of my favorite sets, Guy Greetings (138825/138828/137178).

I love all the texture on this card – It uses the Boho Chic (138286), and  two of our retiring Embossing folders, Honeycomb (129378) and Chevron  (127749).

Zoo Babies & More Shoe box Fun!

Yesterday I shared the card I took in my shoe box for the gathering last night and so today I thought I’d share the wonderful cards my stamping friends brought along. I’m having a hard time deciding which was my favorite so I thought I’d share them all!!! LOL!

Anna used the Zoo Babies stamp set (130453/130456) for her card and I love the was she used the Washi Label Punch (138296) to create the focal point.

While the card was done using only Crumb Cake card stock she added a lot of interest with the different layers and texture.

This second card was Marni’s and she used the same set I did yesterday, (click here to see my card),  Balloon Celebration (140675) along with the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch (140609) – I love the way she used the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper (140550) when she bunched out some of the balloons. After all who doesn’t like a bit of “bling”?

Maria made this cute card using the Ronald McDonald House, Sprinkles of Life stamp set (139971) and the coordinating Tree Builder Punch (138295). This set will retire soon, so if you would like to make a difference and get a wonderful stamp set this is a wonderful choice since Stampin’ Up! donates $3 of every set sold to the RMHC.

She used the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (138443) and Washi Tape (138384). Fun right? Who wouldn’t love getting this bright cheerful birthday greeting?

And the final card uses the Remarkable You stamp set (139891/139894). Done in neutrals it’s simple and elegant, something that Kathleen does so well.

We had the best time last night stamping, sharing and visiting together. And I love the fact we all have a different stamping style. It’s fun to see what others create with the same stamp sets! What do I love best about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator? The people it has brought into my life! I really feel blessed by every stamper I’ve met over the past 7 years.

Sprinkles of Life & More

Are you ready for the NEW Stampin’ Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog that kicks off tomorrow? Are you ready to see some of the new products? Well check out these two cards I made using the NEW 2015 In Colors – I think you’re going to love them!

Sprinkles of Life (139971) is our 2015 Ronald McDonald House stamp set. What is great about that? Well for each stamp set you purchase Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House AND you get this great set!

Sprinkles of Life

Can you see the dimension to the ice cream cone? Well that was created using the NEW Tree Builder Punch (139971) that coordinates with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. Cool right? And who doesn’t love a punch! The Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper (137783) add a touch of interest too and will be gone after tomorrow.

I’ve used three of the five new 2015 – 2017 In Colors on this card – Cucumber Crush , Watermelon Wonder, and Tip Top Taupe. Oh, how I love saying that last color…. it’s just fun to say. Try it … Tip Top Taupe, it just rolls off the tongue! And I think you’ll fall in love with the warm brown too when you see it just like I’ve have.

Want to see more? Well my next card has a totally different look and it uses the soft Mint Macron from the 2015 In Color Collection. I think this color will be great for creating a vintage look.

Buterfly Basics Feel Goods

I’ve used the new Mint Macron Dotted Lace Trim (138428) and the fantastic 2015 In Color Blossom Accents (138383) along with some pearls and the Typeset Specialty Paper (133704) to create this card. And I think the sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set (129681/131916) makes this a great card for a any young lady who is graduating this month.

Great news – You can see these and a lot of other fantastic new products tomorrow for the first time in my Online Store. Want a catalog of your own? Why not place an order with me and I’ll include one in your order for you!
